The Imre Nagy Memorial House is dedicated to the Prime Minister of Hungary during the 1956 revolution. Between 1949 and 1956, Nagy lived in the building with his wife. The house was turned into a museum in 2008, to commemorate the 50th anniversary of the PM’s execution after an unfair trial. Though Nagy was a communist politician, he became a symbol of anti-communist and anti-Soviet resistance.
In the house’s lobby, you can see a life-sized photograph of Imre Nagy. Walls are adorned by replicas of his hand-written papers and pictures documenting the history of the building. The museum shows documentary films about Nagy, but of course there are also other objects introducing his life to visitors.
Although the majority of the collection is in Hungarian, there are few items on display that are available in English.
